I’m so happy to be able to share my newest quilt pattern – Canning Day.
Maybe it’s the time of year, but as I created this quilt, I kept thinking of neat rows of jelly jars cooling on my kitchen counter. The squares in the quilt even made me think of pieces of fabric used to top a jar of preserves, tied with a ribbon and given to a friend. “Canning Day” seemed like the perfect name.
I designed this quilt with my mom. She made hers using Civil War scraps with all the plus signs made in blacks and browns. The shirtings gives her quilt such lovely texture and warmth. Here and there she added unexpected pops of red, mustard or blue.
She is hand quilting hers right now and it is going to be stunning. I love how dramatically fabrics can change the look of each quilt.
